So beautiful.

Saving for later, cause I feel like this is the kind of film I could watch many times - while going to sleep, calming down from a stressful day, seeking aesthetic and cultural inspiration.

Also now I want a proper watch :P

So appreciate this attention to detail and mastery of a craft.

(for my own organization)

so fucking excited. I've been in a programming vortex of joy for the past cpl

Sparkleformation + ansible + minimalist orchestration scripts.

This is maybe the most fun I've ever had automating infrastructure.

For the folks not familiar with sparkleformation, it's a ruby abstraction layer for cloudformation. So it lets one generate resources with the cfn API w/o the horror show of editing massive json template:
sparkleformation.io/

Such a useful / under-the-radar proj

Killing prisoners isn't very Christ-like Henry. What would your fellow parishioners think about that Henry? You fucking horror of a human being

Henry McMaster, governor of Florida, this motherfucker.. yeah, office was closed in evening yesterday, but I've been callin all morning and shit goes straight to voicemail

They don't wanna talk to us. They wanna hide under the desk and give no comments about how they're literally willing to kill inmates - caged in a hurricane, cause they don't want the expense or logistics of evacuating prisoners they keep as slave laborers.

comrades?! Get at that fuckin' office. We will not be ignored

What a miraculous day it will be when we ALL realize how much more revolutionary it is to fight with fierce and specific love to support and care for our comrades than merely with detached and scatter shot vitriol against our oppressors.

That is the point where we will be unstoppable. When we fight for what we want and not against what we don't.

@amphetamine yeah, the shit is unconscionable. Such a fucking evil system. It's really upsetting. Ppl have been saying this. But everybody believes a cop over some colonized folks being criminalized by the state and the press and ppl who don't think twice about those narratives

@galaxgal If the job opportunities are thin for tech where you're at, one thought is to hit up mailing lists and groups in places like Portland, OR where there's an active / social dev community. When I was switching jobs after getting laid off early in my career, the pdx ruby mailing list was a super helpful resource

On that note, dunno what your bg is, but I got started with ruby / sql / rails type of stuff (lots of opportunities (including remote positions) in that realm).
